More about the whole experience and less about the climbing, really, but there's some climbing in there (photos and essay):

Sounds like these guys had a good time even though they got a lot of things wrong.

Estrellita (no s at the end) for example is 12 pitches, not 5 or 6, although you could run some pitches together, and it's not 5.9--there are definitely some 5.10 moves sprinkled throughout the upper pitches. There are also some interesting 5.11 variations on the 3rd and 4th pitches.

Also, that music they talk about is not mariachi music at all, but Northern style music which is an accordion-driven polka type music.

Could be. But I imagine they were playing radios instead of instruments. And all the cool kids like some electric guitars and pop with their rancheras.
